Down women extend league programme

IIt was a key time yesterday for several Ulster ladies sides in the race for league semi-final spots.

Monaghan and Armagh had already secured their play-off tickets in Division One and Three respectively but Down and Antrim were among a contingent of teams trying to extend their league programmes.

Down made it through to the Division Two play-offs when overcoming Clare by 0-15 to 3-3 in round seven, with Cavan having a tie to follow against Galway as they too chase a semi ticket.

Antrim's bid to reach the Division Four semis received a boost when Kirsty McGuiness hit a goal brace during their tie with Louth. The lead swapped hands on numerous occasions between these two teams before a Mairead Cooper goal guided the Saffrons towards a semi slot.

Cork, meanwhile, made sure of their Division One semi-final involvement when defeating Tyrone by 4-20 to 2-8 at Tattyreagh, but the Red Hands still retained their top flight status.
